Friday 7th June 2013
Today was the first chance to resume to some degree of normality and not
have to go rushing off cruising.
Diane was comfortable in bed with her coffee and magazines and phone to read
all of the blogs; I was comfortable at the table getting on with work; the dog
was comfortable on the bed snoring away -
as he does.
A latish breakfast and after a bit more work we ventured up to the shopping
area at Festival Park to pick up a few things from the supermarket – we seem to
always have more in the bags than is on the list – how does that happen?
The Toby Carvery beckoned us after the first set of the men’s first
semi-final in the French Open and we felt quite relaxed when we returned.
The cratch cover was raised and Diane was able to fully enjoy the sunshine
whilst still being able to watch the tennis; cider in hand; she was in heaven.
Meanwhile the chores of the engine bay awaited and as I had neglected the
usual routine last week it was a necessity to be done – a little water in there
which was quickly removed; oil levels OK; water OK; batteries just needing a
little top up.
After that it was a little more work, a little tennis and suddenly the day
was almost gone – it really is quite easy to see the hours vanish before you
even realise it – what a life this boating carry on is – certainly a lovely day
to enjoy it as well !
